No consequences

Just when I thought whatever is going on with whatever happened down there in Steubenville, Ohio, couldn’t get any more outrageous, I read a statement in the paper made by one of the boy’s attorneys. It was almost funny.

“They are reluctant to sacrifice their college career, their reputation, or their otherwise good standing in whatever community they may be found for fear of being vilified, and certain personal information finding its way on the Internet,”

“They are reluctant to sacrifice their college career, their reputation, or their otherwise good standing in whatever community they may be found for fear of being vilified, and certain personal information finding its way on the Internet,”

Well, that’s too damn bad. There are consequences to what you do, and when what you do is probably criminal, those things are some of them. What they’re accused of is serious stuff. Do they not understand? College should not be an issue. Not going straight to prison should be. These kids should be scared sh*tless. Even if they never actually raped the girl and faked the whole, horrible thing in order to make the worst Internet video in history.  Either way, they’re rapists or assholes, and they need to be taught a lesson.
